Take a look at a few of the orange, neon green, and neon pink that are definitely going to turn heads.

Reebok "Rewind" Weekend

Chopping it up today with some really good peoples in the sneaker biz, I decided to throw up another "Rewind" post and see if you could name these or at least name who rocked what. During that conversation it made me think back on some other brands that I had while growing up besides Nike/Jordan. (It was not always nice & breezy....still not now that I think about it! LOL)

These are some of my personal favorites from reebok that I wish they would re-release to the streets. Possible that we might see something from the good folks at Reebok??? You never know..until then...get your google on and comment below if you can name them.

Future Sole M6 Launch Party (It could be you too!)

We reported on this story earlier last month and we just think it's amazing! If you stay in or live near Reading, PA then you are in for a celebration. For the rest of us we can read along at the information Jordan Brand put out and wait for pictures to pop up at a later date. Once they do, you know we got you! Stay tuned.

Since releasing imagery of the winning entry for the 2009 Future Sole Design Competition back in March, the sneaker community has been waiting for details surrounding the potential launch of Austin Jermacan’s winning design. Austin’s design of the Melo M6 was selected as the winning submission amongst the thousands of entries in the 2009 Future Sole Design Competition and we are pleased to announce that due to popular demand, we will be launching the Future Sole M6 on today at Villa in Austin’s home town of Reading, PA.

For those interested in attending, the festivities will begin at 3:30 on Thursday and will kick off with a sneaker design workshop being held for the Boys and Girls club that will be led by Jordan footwear designers. Attendees will get the chance to meet Austin as well as lead designers from our team, and have an opportunity to win an autographed jersey from Carmelo Anthony as well as a pair of the Jordan Future Sole M6. Austin’s winning design of the Melo M6 will then go on sale at 5:00. Villa is located at 547 Penn Street in Reading, PA. For those not able to attend, limited quantities of Austin’s Future Sole M6 be made available at retailers nationwide on Saturday the 29th.

If you are interested in becoming the next Jordan footwear designer by participating in the Future Sole Design Competition, then head over to to sign up. Registration for the 2010 Future Sole Design Competition is open through July 7th. via Jumpman23

Now that is love having your creation on an NBA players foot! Remember you can do it too! *Cue N.E.R.D.

Nike Navaro Low – (Black/White)

So while we all are grabbing the retro madness out there that Nike has to offer make sure you don't sleep on a pair of the Nike Navaro lows. A low cut tennis-inspired design, from the vulcanized midsole to the perforated swoosh make for a really nice casual kicker for this summer. We like it because of the clean cut upper and color tone used on this one. Be on the lookout because an all white/blk version should be released shortly after. Retail on these are only $65 and can be found at select Nike retailers.

Nike Hyperfuse Low Varsity Blue Black White

So with all the buzz around low top sneakers lately being on the court we take a look into the Nike Hyperfuse Low model. Rondo from the Boston Celtics is rocking this same shoe but only in a mid top cut. It takes mesh netting and what appears to be foamposite like material on certain parts of the shoe. No official word on when it will release but as always we will keep you up to speed. Check out the detailed shots below and let us know what you think about these being a decent hoop shoe!

Nike WMNS Dunk Hi Supreme – Pink – Silver

Available now at select Nike accounts for the ladies!!! We should know by now that summer is officially here when Nike starts to drop these loud colors in the Nike Dunk Hi for the ladies. Keep in mind ladies that it is a "supreme" so quality is a tad better than the normal dunk stock. Silver swoosh and white laces seems to set this one off pretty nice! Be on the lookout ladies.

Nike Zoom Trainer Huarache

So a few post ago the pictures of Wale popped up rocking a "limited release" color in the Zoom Trainer Huarache. Even though NIke has no plans as of yet bringing back the OG style Huarache they will hit us with this hybrid throughout the year. Take a look at some of the colors we can expect to see drop from Nike this year, there should be a colorway for all if you didn't like the joints Wale had on! Lol. Keep it locked.

Nike Trainer 1.2 Chlorophyll

Get ready for another NIke rendition of the Air Trainer 1 hybrid now being called the Trainer 1.2 in the Chlorophyll colorway. These will hit select accounts this summer. Check out the BO inspired mid foot strap they decided to keep on there along with the fabric flywire mid panel for a lighter feel. Thoughts on these?

Air Jordan Retro IX (9) University Blue White

WOw,,,just fresh off the net while you see everybody else posting pictures of the White/University Blue 9's that are scheduled to release this week, Jordan Brand hits us with a "University Flip" colorway. So while we are not big fans of the all white outsole this makes for one clean looking 9. The University Blue upper is nubuck while the rest of the midsole/around the toe cap area sports that white patent leather. The 23 logo which we normally see on the back is replaced with a basketball hear emblem. No official word if these will be some sort of quickstrike or when they will release. Stay close and like always will keep you posted.

Wale x Nike Zoom Trainer Huarache

We are yet to show you the Nike Zoom Trainer Huarache but Wale of course has them on foot 6mnths early! LOL. This particular color is rumored to release sometime in fall of 2010. We personally can't wait for this shoe to drop overall because it is another one of those trainer Huaraches that we all seem to love @SSD. SHout out to the homie G-Roc (@theshoegame) for posting the pictures at the Rosa Acosta, Wale, Young Dro after party in the A! SO what do you all think of the shoe?

Jordan “Future Sole” Melo M6 – May 29th

Future Sole Jordan M6 release date is set for Saturday, May 29th. They will retail for $125. Really dope sneaker coming from a fellow sneakerhead like you and I!

Air Jordan Retro II (2) Vero Cuio Sample

So even though the these will never hit the light of day we still thought we should post them for your viewing pleasure. These are called the "Vero Cuio" or "Real Leather." These were rumored to be a sampled version on the platform that the bin 23 retro 2's were molded after. Check out the premium features and details that this sample has along with the removable gold tips. Again, these will never hit the streets/retail but it's interesting to see some of the things they keep/remove when trying to figure out the retail version.
